Therapist designed box of finger fun! Includes tasks to work on small muscle control of the fingers. Start by manipulating three small balls around the palm. Next use the unique adjustable butterfly device for placing washers. Third task places chips into hand held container and last uses the pencil-like magnet device to pick-up, retrieve and retain as many washers as possible in one hand. Unusual and motivating devices challenges the hands and encourages hard work from the finger muscles needed for writing.
In hand manipulation kit08/10/2017 ByOT Mom Tracey le Roux This kit is a good one for older kids, who feel that toys are too babyish for them to work with. I numbered the wooden balls and had the kids try and arrange them in a certain numbered order. Boys especially enjoyed doing activities with "real" tools - and you can really give the hand muscles a good workout. I found the kids were working the different arches of their hands, and also getting effective thumb opposition and manipulation.
I gave it four stars as I felt that 4 wooden balls would be more challenging than 3, and there could be a few more washers and butterfly pegs. However, the activities themselves are a good challenge, and if I could have given 4 1/2 stars, I would have!
